Port Workers Engage In A Go-Slow Protest Against Victimisation

8

Workers at the Antigua Port Authority took industrial action on Tuesday, in the form of a go-slow, against what one of the shop stewards referred to as “clear cut victimisation.”

According to port worker Amin Henry, all of the workers who are represented by the Antigua Trades and Labour (AT&LU) took action on account of an ongoing issue involving the Ports tow truck operators.

“As it stands, there is an issue that the workers had which is basically the tow truck operators being dealt with by management and the union. Based on that, a decision was taken. There was a meeting yesterday, we were told.” said Henry.

“In the regulations, the truck drivers are not supposed to drive and go onto the vessel until the goods that are being brought are placed on the dock. It’s in the regulations. They are trying to say that that’s not what it is,” Henry added.

Henry is of the belief that workers were being victimised in an effort by management to avoid compensating them for working overtime.

  1. Wait you mean to tell me they are capable of working even slower than they already do? I thought if they went any slower they would me moving backwards.

  2. Spending 100 million broad US dollar notes on a new Port and your drivers won’t discharge a ro/ro vessel. We are really the laughing stock of the world. When Trump calls us a “$h1t hole” country he is not far from the truth.

  3. You mean molasses the distillery across from them closed so they want to be in rum processing LMAO. Just do your damn jobs. The labour code need to be revised. How about working now for all the other times you weren’t

  4. @port user. Two things; 1: when did trump call antigua a “shit hole” country? Or was it Haiti?
    2: since when does a corrupt, idiotic and delusional man opinion about this beautiful twin island state matters? What you need to do Is stop drinking that yellow and blue kool aid
